in this election, certainly the convention in tampa and then sandy. it's easy to measure the impact but among the voters that decided last night and in the last seven days barack obama actually won a majority which is a huge surprise to political scientists around the country who will tell you when you have an incumbent challenger the challenger picks up the majority of the last voters and the so-called undecided voters. in this case they broke for the incumbent and sandy probably had something to do with that. so i think it is a matter of policy. it's a matter of outreach that includes people speaking for the republican party and a matter of tone making people feel that this is not just an inclusive party, these policies are inclusive and the way to create more jobs and never can be for everybody is to have the policies that were enunciated in the plan that met on the lead out and we were not successful getting it to that level. >> do you think the comments by the senatorial candidates todd akin and richard more mattered in the polling that use all for the republicans brought the? >> yes. ag
presentation. wondered how hurricane sandy and the possible need for fema to get emergency supplemental aid will impact on the lame-duck and if you could talk a little bit about that and if you think the cr that goes through march now will be voted into that to be finished out for the year. >> let me talk about that because i wasn't appropriator. the preparation process is not only broken down, it's jut down. as a consequence, all of the recent decisions are made with respect to the cr. the cr ultimately is written to the leader's office. so those decisions will not be made in the lame-duck by majorities on either side. it will be made by harry reid on the senate side and neither agreed to or acquiesced in by john boehner on the house side. it's the worst rate in appropriate is to put it on the hands of one man, two men in this case. i can't give you any guidance on that. talk to john boehner and see what he agreed to. there would be no logical appropriations process with respect to these issues. >> banks. i was wondering who would be among the first of the cabinet secretaries that will be
the program being overhauled as a result of what happened because of sandy? >> okay. in reference to your first question, i don't think, you know, it's a day after the election. i don't, you know, what is going to happen with the dscc. first you'd have to ask people, including senator gillibrand, whether she'd want it, and i haven'ted talked to her about it yet. we talked about elections and congratulations, and she did a great job in the senate in the first six years, first two years and will do a great job in the next six years. she's a great partner to have, and i'm glad she won an overwhelming victory and proud of the victory that she won. in terms of flood insurance, obviously, you know, we have huge damage in new york. it is incredible. um, i flew by helicopter the first day with the mayor and a little later, next day with the governor. and you saw how broad the damage was, you know, it wasn't just one community or two communities, but just spread out all over a huge area, huge metropolitan area. and then for the four days after that or five or six spent time on the ground, and you
hurricane sandy, the superstorm, has done to states, so many states, destroying lives and property and leaving people without power for days on end. well, multiply that many times, mr. president, if it were a deliberate cyber attack that knocked out the electric grid along the entire east coast. that's what we're talking about. that is the kind of risk that calls us to act. we have heard from the experts over and over again that this vulnerability is huge and escalating. we know that the number of cyber attacks that have been reported to the department of homeland security has increased by 200% in just the last year. and those are just the -- the attacks that have been reported. that's just the tip of the iceberg. undoubtedly, there are many more on our critical infrastructure that have not been reported. we know that there have been attempts to probe the security of the computer systems that run some of our natural gas pipelines. this problem is very real and it is not only a threat to our national and homeland security, it is also a threat to the economic prosperity of this count
did with hurricane sandy. we can do this with the hurricane and the debt in the fiscal cliff coming if only we can get it up to a vote in the house. now that may not happen and maybe they cannot reach a deal on this plan because there is no plan and no easy procedural way to get a vote that would guarantee a few months down the road that you would actually meet those targets and frankly finding a tax reform plan that raises the trillion dollars in revenues is far trickier than the 1986 tax reform which cut rates, eliminate deductions that was revenue-neutral. that was tough enough but if they can manage to do that we may see that dynamic emerged. i will make two other quick points. one is a very interesting role the paul ryan will play from this point on. paul ryan was simultaneously a loser and a winner on tuesday night. a winner because he won his house seat, a loser for the obvious reason but also for a couple of good additional ones. it's kind of embarrassing when you're put on a ticket and you cannot carry your own state and also his percentage in his own district went down sig
saw what we did what hurricane sandy. we can do this with the hurricane in the fiscal cliff coming if only we can get it up to a vote in the house. that may not happen and it may be that they cannot reach a deal on this plan because there is no procedural way to get a vote that would guarantee a few months down the road that you would actually need those targets. frankly finding a tax reform plan that raises a trillion dollars in revenue is far trickier than the 1986 tax reform that cut rates, broaden the base and eliminate the deduction but was revenue neutral, i was tough enough. but if they can manage to find that we may see that dynamic emerge let me make two other quick points. he was a loser and a winner on tuesday night. a winner because he won his house seat, a loser for the obvious reason but also for a couple of additional ones. it's kind of embarrassing when you are put on the ticket and you can't carry your own state. but also his percentage in his district went down significantly. at the same time, there was no question that paul ryan, who was a national figure but far
repeat the question. go ahead. >> [inaudible] >> the impact of hurricane sandy on the election; great question. >> well, our polling showed that there was an impact -- our final poll showed obama with 57% and romney with 47%. we had a dead tie a week earlier. so, the only intervening event at that time was sandy come and obama about 70% approval for his handling of the situation. a plurality of romney supporters also approved. i think in the end it was modest. i don't think it really ticked one way or the other. i think obama had been edging a little bit ahead even prior to the hurricane. i think the last two debates obviously not as important as the first. it never is. but, you know obama had not only stemmed the momentum following the first debate, but also i think had developed slightly a little bit of his own. i think in the end it probably helped him. certainly the atmospherics and the symbols of chris christi embracing him on a well-known republican helped him i think was on the margin pretty much. might have felt in the popular vote of northeast. we did see a big swing for obam
play ad big role in this election. shortening the convention in tampa and then sandy at the end probably did have an impact. i don't know that, it is easy to measure that impact but paul and i talked about, among the voters who decided at the last minute, voters who decided in the last seven days, barack obama actually won a majority, which was a huge surprise to political scientists around the country who will tell you where you have incumbent and challenger, the challenger picks up the majority of last-minnesotaers and so-called undecided voters because they're not happy with the status quo but they wait until the end to decide. in this case they actually broke for the incumbent. sandy probably had something to do with that. but look, i think, it's a matter of policy. it's a matter of outreach and having right people speaking for the republican party. finally it is a matter of tone. i think again making people feel that this is not just an inclusive party. forget the party. these policies are inclusive. the way to grow this economy and create more jobs an opportunity for every
they will never know that right. when we filed the case, christine sandy, the lead plaintiffs in that case, they were just entering high school. they're going to graduate in june. their moms still are not married, so we have to tell this human story. as often as possible because that is what america cares about. and we have to be smart and strategic about how we get these victories and how we get them as fast as we can. but always remembering why we fight. i can't be more eloquent than you just were. >> you are talked about the coalition before the work that was done in this election. how do you see our role as lgbt people in working on other issues and where do you see that play out? those benefits that don't always get that. >> you are absolutely right or good something that patrick was talking about there. it's very important and if you look at the fiscal cliff we are all talking about, sequestration and you look at, if we don't come to a sensible resolution here, all people including lgbt people, right, it's often silly when we have these discussions. lgbt people aren't part of the com
, there was that cnn story during that awful hurricane sandy week about how the new york stock exchange was under three feet of water, of course it wasn't true. it wasn't true at all. cnn got that story now from one of its reporters. cnn got the story from an online message board on the national weather service's website. so they got a line, three feet of water, new york stock, and they put it out. i want to take on cnn because it could've been done by somebody else, too. but that to me is one of the dangers in trying to retain a best standards, some practice, someplace where you can turn and say this is the right way of doing things, and this is simply wrong. and they have the impression these days despite all of the good things that you have said about all the curators and whatever, all that stuff being said, i am left with an uneasy feeling, that i don't know where all the information is coming from. i don't have a feeling that, remember years ago when we knew every cameraman who was taking pictures of some big event in cairo? we knew exactly, joe with cbs was taking the picture, and you knew that i

consumption of opposition to co2 and global warming in the wake of hurricane sandy and we will have to see what happens. another category that didn't get talked about, and that's very unfortunate and first on that list i would talk about health care defined as madison, defined as curing things since the clinton era we have had abundant discussions of health care finance, health care insurance. in the same period, the number of quantity of medicine emerging from the medical scientific pipeline has plummeted the number of new drugs with 62% in the last 15 years and medical device is down 40%, the number of new antibiotics, the amount of the venture capital of the field is down anywhere between a third to 3/4 depending on which source you look to but nobody thinks it's going up. in other words we are in a paradoxical situation at president obama's reelection will only enunciate this further. we are committed to taking care of everybody in this country on health care. the truth of the matter is we have had a version of national health insurance since the emergency treatment and labor act of 19
.8%. if you adjust a little bit for new york and new jersey having a really low turnout because of sandy, turnout in those states was 55.3. what i'd like, what i don't want to talk about is demographic substitutes. we are by the only people in the world who do not use exit polls were judging the turnout for subgroups. i am silent on that until six or eight months from now when the census bureau comes out with its current population survey and that's 90,000 people, much better and more reliable. when people say, you know, turnout went up between 18 and 19% of african-americans, that's too small a major to make that claim. we know that african-americans turned out in substantial numbers, and we know young people did not fall, have the same drop off as commenting, people predicted, including me. but i don't want to quantify. what i want to do is talk about something that is slightly different. our turnout increased beginning in 2000 through 2008. increased in very small amounts in 2000, 2002 because since 1996 and 98 were historically low turnouts. increased substantially in 2004, for a mid
a hearing on sandy and its effects? >> guest: i anticipate that -- i'm not sure if it would be necessarily at the federal level, but i know in terms of this -- i'm pretty confident that, and i was a state commissioner, that there will be some ais accessments minimally on a state-by-state level in terms of, again, looking at, um, what was done and looking at and evaluating and making pronouncements as to what we can do better. so there will be hearings, i'm not sure if it's going to escalate to the federal level. >> host: minion clyburn -- mignon clyburn and paul kirby, this is "the communicators" on c-span. >> tomorrow night watch the election results from the presidential campaign along with key contests in house, senate and governors' races on c-span. up next, a house debate with u.s. representative and former republican presidential candidate michele bachmann and her democratic challenger, jim graves to represent minnesota's 6th congressional district. then at 9 a.m. eastern we are live with an analysis of the competitive house and senate races with two former congressmen, republican to
insurance. by people who don't generally don't have flood insurance. the problem is, sandy flouted lots of areas that were not on those floodplains maps. i talked to a guy industry has been living in the same neighborhood for 40 years, never had a drop of water in his house, and never bought flood insurance. so he is going to be in rough shape trying to rebuild his basement. places like hoboken across the hudson river in new jersey, flood insurance, people have flood insurance but it doesn't cover finished basement but if you're living in an urban area where people have basement apartments that they rent out, rely on income, they have finished basement, talking not necessarily basement that all the way down the garden apartments, that sort of thing, that's only covered up to $5000. people are potentially out a lot of money even if they have maximum coverage. >> here's the gentlemen you just referred to in brooklyn. repairs and appliances will likely cost him between 20 and $30,000. fema will tell him it will be $4400 as part of an individual assistance program. let's take a look at the
